Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

Yh I don’t mind the idea of Broja either, providing we aren’t spending a fortune on him (in regards to us being able to spend in other areas). If we could get him on loan with an option perfect, if not, there could probably be a deal to be had with Chelsea. I think with Broja, you could also get awa...

Re: The new kits thread

I shouldn’t like that, but I kind of do! I know exactly what you mean…will certainly be on my shopping list to wear on holiday… The home shirt is ok, certainly gets better with updated photos. The first one was bad. The collar looked really big and round. These pictures don’t show it like that. I w...

If it’s between us and Villa he’ll go to villa
He’d be a bit silly wouldn’t he if he did that for footballing reasons. However, it’s likely we’d offer him £100k per week, whereas they will offer him £300k per week and a 10% stake in the club.

RE Aguerd - anyone else not thinking 'so if he's so good, why aren't Newcastle and Villa in for him?' :crossed:
The player has to want £150k per week for Villa to be interested.

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

Ward-Prowse doesn’t particularly excite me either, especially given what he would cost. Southampton fans seem to think £55m is way too low, which seems crazy enough already. They also don’t think he should move to us as we only have a marginal chance of finishing above them. I mean, they’ve only bea...

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

Burnley fans have a thread called ‘where will our players go’.

Nearly every poster has Pope leaving with us as the destination. Not many list Brownhill as an exit at all. Most assume he’ll be with them in the Championship.

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

I haven’t really watched Aguerd tbh. I mean, assuming he played against Spurs, but I would’ve been focusing on wanting Spurs to get beat more. Based on write ups and the post from Misko, he seems exactly what we need and would make sense to buy him. Being a smokescreen from a completely different ty...

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

My possibly fallible memory of it was that he probably shouldn’t even have been starting in the final 3 or 4 games he’d been so off it. I’d still sign him again though if the terms were fair. There were certainly people moaning that he was ‘undroppable’. However, I thought it was a bit harsh someti...

Vlasic isn’t crap. Being shunted out on the wing when you get your chance once a month doesn’t make you crap.

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

Liverpool signed Jota, everybody was questioning why they signed a player who wasn’t better than what they currently had. He’s scored vital goals throughout the season. If we’d had Dennis for the second half of this season, I’m confident we’d have finished in the top 6. When was everybody questioni...

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

His stats from open play are not “fantastic” at all. There’s a big rush to talk about how good Ward-Prowse is with stats, yet when you defend Benrahma using his, the stats get thrown out of the window. None of the links excite me at all. Brownhill, Ward-Prowse, Dennis. While we will consider sellin...

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

Benrahma literally had a bust up with Moyes on the touch line. It’s old school, but do that to someone like Fergie and you get binned. It’s not old school, it would be stupidity. Not like Moyes hasn’t thrown a tantrum on the touchline is it? I doubt it has anything to do with that. It stinks of fin...

Has also stated that we are willing to listen to offers for Soucek and Benrahma.

Feeds into the ‘hopefully see you next season’ aspect of Coufal’s recent social media post.
Don’t understand selling either of them.

In terms of both quality and style, there’s a massive difference between Brownhill and Gallagher.

Wonder if we have an interest in signing them both.
As a great French striker once said. ‘You shouldn’t confuse F1 and go karting’. Though Brownhill is more like borrowing your mates old Skateboard.

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

Bentancur is already signed permanently, and i think they just need to finalise Romero and Kulaveski now Yh, Romero was on loan also. I actually didn’t realise that until a couple of months ago. That’s going to the best part of £100m spent since January. Not to mention paying off 2 big contracts an...

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

I don’t really care how many players we sign I just want each of them to be first team challengers, not just understudies/squad fillers. Christian Eriksen would be transformational. Brentford are the lowest payers in the league. I’d start there and ask for Rico Henry while I’m at it. The majority o...

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

You do not seem to see the point I am trying to make. I am not against adding a quality CM as cover (indeed we must) but I am against spending the majority of the budget on that position to get a starter in place of Soucek when there are needs elsewhere in the side. If we are going to spend on star...

You then have a quality player in Soucek on the bench
Rice and Soucek have just played 50+ games, simply as our other CM’s were not considered good enough. Why is cheaping out in that position the answer again? It would not cost £50m to find some quality to add to Rice and Soucek.

Re: The Summer Transfer Thread 2022.

There's a bit of squad player need, though - it's the lack of squad players in, say, central midfield that mean Rice and Soucek have had to play 50 games this season. There’s a need for players. Not necessarily a need for squad players. We had 4 CM in the squad this season, yet two played 50+ games...
